Some days you just have to surrender...surrender...surrender.
Some days you have to just rest and soften and feel the vulnerability and the loneliness and the sadness and the insecurity and know that at the very least, you are never alone because you’re there to hold yourself. To rest in your sometimes fragile humanity. To love your soft spots. To stay with the discomfort and the oddness of being in this lone, singular body.
We live such linear lives. Always needing to get somewhere. Do some thing. Show some kind of proof of our existence and our worthiness of existing in the first place.
We belong. We’ve always belonged. We belong even if a day forces us to rest and sleep and stay with the pain. Don’t leave. Stay.
And, at the end of the day, we’re never truly alone. We have ourselves to curl into the duvet with. And maybe too, there are those that show us their care. That make us laugh. That share a tear with us. That remind us to take just the next breath.
This is enough. This is life. Nowhere to get to. Nothing to do. Just stay and rest in your own company. Maybe that too, is simply enough...
